Last year, we didn’t really celebrate Christmas. Not only had I just moved, but my brother-in-law had neurosurgery. Once he was out of the operating room and out of danger, my sister and I returned to the hotel she was staying at in the city, where the surgery took place. We drank wine and watched “Gilmore Girls” and were thankful her husband, who has also been our brother’s best friend since they were nine years old, was safe. This year, he needs more surgery. Here’s hoping that it goes well again and he will be healthy soon, free of pain.
